If you are having trouble finding a direct replacement for this model you are not the only one.
My suggestion is to remove the old pump and go to Graingers or in the store and take the old pump in and get a direct or similar replacement.
I think that you will find that finding a replacement might result in having to make some small modification to install the replacement, however parts are not readily available for this model any longer.

Loud water pump


there is the possibility there is trash caught in the impeller that is causing noisy operation.

Other than that, sometimes the pumps will run loud. Its usually a early sign of motor failure. Not much you can do there.

I would recommend you order a new pump and have it at least on standby. And be prepared, Hoshi is proud of their parts and it shows in the price.



In short, if theres nothing caught anywhere, let it roll til it dies and then replace it.

We have a Whirlpool K40 Ice Maker but it seems to have stopped producing ice. The motor is running but there is no water coming into the machine & therefore no ice is being frozen & cut by the...


a few things to check, first off is adequate water supply(obviously).. next check your drain system, if your unit gravity drains look for a blockage, but if you have a secondary drain pump to pump away water check for proper operation, if that pump fails the machine will no longer let water in( thinks it full and no need to produce more ice if it cant get rid of old water

Hoshizaki ice machine KM500-MAE not sending water to harvest


I would not change the pump. If it runs for 3-5 minutes and stops, it has to be a control. The control board runs the freeze cycle for the first 5 minutes. This prevent "Short Cycling" of the freeze cycle. The board looks at the float after the first 5 minutes for the proper water level but should not effect the pump. If the pump does not run in the wash mode, check out the "Power/ Wash" switch. I would start there before I go spending hundreds on pump motor or control board. You may be able to get by on a $20 fix! Do this and get back to me. We will get it going.

Good Luck

Check the condenser if it is restricted in any way it will decrease ice production. Check for water overflow from the sump. Any more water than necessary entering the sump will also cause a decrease in ice production.

Waterpump of Ice Machine KM-500MAH-E


Always attempt to have Hoshizaki pumps rebuilt when possible. The parts are cheap compared to buying a new pump. Check ebay from time to time I have just started tearing units down and selling the used parts, that are still functional. Sold that pump for $75 last week
